Playing a Spanish-made guitar is sort of like getting back to the instrument's roots. You don't just feel connected to the sound: there's also something special about the look and feel of authentic Spanish craftsmanship. That's one of the first things you'll notice about a Manuel Rodriguez classical or nylon guitar. They bring that genuine spirit to every instrument they build, allowing musicians of all skill and experience levels to find out just what it's like to play an amazing guitar. How does Manuel Rodriguez get to that level of expertise? The answer is simple: by spending more than a century perfecting the craft. The man the company is named after was born in 1887 and grew up surrounded by flamenco-loving family. He joined right in, and took naturally to building his own instruments. His shop opened in 1905, which would make him just 18 at the time, but even by that age he was an accomplished luthier and the shop has been following his example ever since.
Are you new to the classical guitar? If so, the Caballero 11 Cedar Top Classical Guitar may be the choice for you. This instrument is affordable for any player but makes no compromise on material quality, including Canadian cedar and Indian rosewood as well as silver-plated frets. If you're an advanced or professional guitarist, your options open up even more with instruments like the Manuel Rodriguez FF Cutaway Cypress Classical Acoustic-electric Guitar. It's as beautiful to look at as it is to listen to, thanks to its handcrafted construction and the top-shelf selection of woods and tonewoods that it's made of.
Manuel Rodriguez classical and nylon guitars have been renowned and prized by guitarists ever since they first came onto the scene more than a century ago. When you're looking for a traditional-style acoustic guitar, this is one name that should absolutely be at the top of your list - and, with luck, at the top of your headstock soon enough.
